Silence in Italy
Concert: 18 Nov 2005 --
Presented by: AgostinoDiScipio
Public:
Amici di Musica/Realtà
Milan -- Italy
http://www.conservatoriopiccinni.it/

In Milano, the Amici di Musica/Realtà and composer Agostino DiScipio will be premiering the first in a new series called 3 silent pieces on 18 November 2005. In this project, pianist Ciro Longobardi will be depressing the piano keys without allowing the hammer mechanism to hit the strings. The thin noise of fingers hitting on keys will be the main material; however, when he fails by depressing the keys too strongly and hitting the strings, Kyma will amplify and transform the pitched sound material into a denser texture, eventually masking the very thin key noises. The pianist then has to cope with the consequences of his mistakes, resorting to "security measures" in an attempt to shut the Kyma processing down — only then can he continue shifting along the keyboard "silently".

On November 23, the piece, 3 PEZZI MUTI (DALLA SUPERFICE AL FONDO), for piano and live electronics (adaptive processing, operated with Kyma, Ciro Longobardi, piano), will be performed again at the University of Salerno in the Teatro Campus Fisciano.
